From the Deepcool website:
Deepcool was founded with the mission of providing the best performance and humanized thermal solutions for worldwide customers.

With the release of many exceptional cases, coolers, fans, and more, Deepcool has been gaining popularity of late. However, they are not new to the PC market and have, in fact, been around since 1996, offering a wide range of products since they opened their doors, including fans, coolers, cases, and accessories. With a drive to satisfy their customers by providing an excellent experience, it is no wonder the company always seems to have a new product on the market.
Deepcool really does offer some great products, like the Gamer Storm line of CPU coolers, which includes the Assassin and Lucifer, and the Maelstrom series of all-in-one liquid coolers. They have expanded into power supplies with the Quanta series, while also introducing cases like the Steam-punk-inspired Steam Castle. With such a strong and growing stable of exceptional products, it is no wonder Deepcool's popularity is growing.
In today's review, I will look at the Maelstrom 120, the smaller sibling to the Maelstrom 240 I reviewed some time ago. Using a single 120 mm fan and a smaller 154 mm x 120 mm x 27 mm radiator, the Maelstrom 120 follows in the footsteps of many other all-in-one liquid coolers, the key differences its features and color theme. As there is an expected performance level for an AIO Coller of this size, I anticipate a solid showing from Deepcool's latest offering, but let us get down to testing the unit before jumping to conclusions.
